Postoperative peritonitis. Use of metabolic disorders as criteria for reoperations

Annales de l'anesthésiologie française
J C ManelliJ Bimar


The authors compared three groups of subjects: - the first group (11 patients) : re-operated for post-operative peritonitis; - the second group (6 patients) : re-operated for evisceration without any underlying lesion; - the third group (8 patients) : non-reoperated, complicated abdominal surgery. Study of the different laboratory parameters helped to identify a number of changes which could plead in favor of reintervention, in the group of peritonitis. Among these modifications, the progressive fall in the urinary Na/K ratio and the negativity of the nitrogen balance appear to play a privileged role.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
